When someone is doing something they shouldn't be, instead of calling them out, ring the bell and draw attention to someone who WAS on task. (She gives a tally.) Makes everyone aware they are being watched without hurting feelings.
Neat Idea! One student is selected to be the "Ask Me" person (to help students who need assistance) while the teacher works with small groups-no disruptions for the teacher!!! Also a great idea for work - you are the one on call - put it on :) and the others get to work in peace
Classroom reward system- If the class shows great behavior, they will get to color in a letter tile of their choice. When every tile is colored in, the students will win that specific award. I just googled "Scrabble Font" and downloaded it for free. :)
